    Ok this setup is connected together through the USB port, and iTunes playback is pretty spotty, a lot of sound dropping out, and stuttering. It is using the DigiCore Manager 6.9.2 on 10.4.4 , and I really dont' have much advice for my friend, so I figured I'd turn to my MacRumors friends for some insight?

    Got any?
    Oh, and how would I connect this MBox through the digital audio input on the 17" PB?

    I listen to iTunes through my MBox with the DigiDesign CoreAudio driver 6.9.2 on 10.4.3. It works perfectly. The reason you would want to listen to music this way is so you can listen through whatever monitors you had hooked up to your MBox, typically much more high end than any computer speakers you could buy. So there is no need to use your Mac's audio optical output.

    As for your friend's problem, I can't say what is causing the drop outs, but check the cables. Poor quality cables or connections not plugged in all the way are common problems.
